After looking at the brochures we went out full of hope on landing a trophy fish but that certainly wasn't the case. There was 9 people on the boat and just 4 rods. We just... read more

We have just returned from a days fishing trip with this company and want to pass on our thoughts to other people who wish to go on this sort of excursion...IT WAS DREADFUL.. We booked through an Expedia agent who did not advise us of the company who we were travelling with They were 40 minutes late picking us up... More

We had booked a private fishing tour but due to a misstake we were forced to go on a joined tour. I dont know if the misstake was made by Sommai fishing or the place were we booked the trip. But the grade doesn't change beacuse the tour was terrible. We were just put on a boat. Nobody said anything,... More

By far one of the worst things I've ever done.. Ok ok I know some people catch fish to eat, but not to throw on the floor and to have been covered in fish blood and guts!! There was a boat of 9 Chinese people including me and my gf. We paid to fish and did not even get to... More

I can't say anymore Than what has already been said. Just a terrible terrible experience. Got off feeling very cheated and ripped off. Plus it seems all guests paid different prices. So ask the question before you pay. 50% discounts seem normal. Even at 1200 would still fell cheated. Find someone else, pay more or go to the Phuket fishing... More

I was 40 mins late getting picked up eventually set sail 10:00. The boat was more like a ferry than a fishing boat. Very little communication between the staff and paying customers. We had to draw cards, not sure what for at the time but I got no. 14 only 4 lines put out the back whilst we trolled along.... More

Was excited to go fishing in Phuket after a great experience a long time ago. Booked this trip from a tourist desk at the Jungceylon shopping centre so I thought it would be reputable. I was the first picked up from my hotel and then spent over an hour driving around picking up 9 other people. Got to departure point... More

Booked this tour on a Tuesday for a Thursday trip... Price was great at 11,000THB for an all-day charter for my wife and me. Was told we would be picked up from our hotel at 0800 and they were there at 0755. Arrived at the dock around 0850 and went directly to the boat to start our day of fishing.... More

After booking this tour through a local tour operator I then read some trip advisor reviews some of which were not very good at all. However I found the reverse, it was a great day out and good value. I accept that it might depend on the boat & crew on the day you depart. I have been going on... More
